At the 2019 Summer NAMM, the 35th Annual TEC Awards announced the pro audio and sound production nominees across 23 technical achievement and eight creative achievement categories.

“There was a deep pool of TEC Awards nominee submissions this year, indicating growth in many of the categories TEC recognizes,” says Eric Greer, TEC Entries & Nominations Supervisor. “As the industry has grown and evolved, the TEC Awards has adapted by adding and modifying categories, and it’s good to see that those introduced over the last decade post a strong number of entries.

“These innovations showcase the future trends found across sound production—from the evolution of signal processing hardware to the rise of products for both sound professionals and audio enthusiasts—truly fueling this new generation of recording.”

Presented annually by The NAMM Foundation as a part of The NAMM Show, the TEC Awards recognize the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind the sound of recordings, live performances, films, television, video games and multi-media.

Both the technical and creative achievement categories were evaluated by a group of industry experts from all facets of the pro audio and sound production industries. Final nominees are those products and projects that, in the opinion of the nominating panel, represent superior accomplishment in their respective fields.

A special product showcase from several nominated brands including Yamaha, Avid, BOSS, iZotope, Line 6, Rupert Neve Designs, PreSonus, Steinberg, and Eventide, served as a gathering point for the leaders in pro audio to acknowledge the nominees.

Final voting begins this November and winners will be announced at TEC Awards at The NAMM Show, on Saturday, January 18, 2020 in Anaheim.
